Based on the 1862 best-selling Victor Hugo novel of the same name, Signatures much-anticipated musical version features an award-winning score by composer Claude-Michel Schonberg and libretto by Alain Boubil. Trademark songs include I Dreamed a Dream, Bring Him Home and On My Own.
According to Signature, One of the most popular musicals of all time, Boublil and Schnbergs Les Misrables is a passionate saga of love and betrayal set during the upheaval of post revolutionary France. At its center, fugitive Jean Valjean is pitted against the tenacious Inspector Javert in a lifelong struggle to evade capture. This deeply personal drama of a man seeking redemption is played out against a sweeping historical backdrop of unparalleled scale, where the worlds of student revolutionaries, thieves and criminals, and desperate young lovers collide.
With a cast of 28 and a 14-piece orchestra, the 280-seat Signature Theatre is the smallest professional theatre to produce the show, which is normally staged in theatres with a 1,500 capacity.
The award-winning cast includes Greg Stone, from the national touring companies of Les Misrables and Miss Saigon, as the fugitive Jean Valjean; Andrew Call, of Broadways Glory Days, as Marius; Tom Zemon, of the Broadway productions of Les Miz and The Scarlet Pimpernel, as pursuer Javert; Stephanie Waters as Cosette (she also performed the role on Broadway); Signature Theatre favorite and two-time Helen Hayes nominee Tracy Lynn Olivera as Fantine; Christopher Bloch (Signatures Urinetown) as Thenardier; Helen Hayes Award winner Sherri L. Edelen as Madame Thenardier; Felicia Curry as Eponine; and Chris Sizemore as Enjolras.
